Scalp Naval in the Greek submarines bring the Turkish ballistic missiles that were tested, with a range of more than 500 km.
The test of the Turkish Tayfun ballistic missile, with a range of more than 500 km, brings back to the table the French Scalp Naval, which can be carried by the French Belharras.
What the Turks are afraid of is France supplying the Greeks with this particular type of missile.
French super-missiles can also be launched from submarines, with a range of 1,000 km, as well as from ships with a range of more than 1,000 km.
That is, if a Greek Belharra launches a missile from… Salamis, it will be able to hit a target in Ankara.
Let’s remember that the current Belharra configuration does not include Scalp Naval strategic missiles, only Aster 30 and Exocet MM40 Block 3c.
Are Turkish ballistic missiles bringing Scalp Naval to Greek submarines?
However, the fact that the French frigates do not include Scalp Naval does not mean that Greece will not have cruise missiles.
Can Scalp Naval have some other platform such as e.g. the submarines 214.
Scalp Naval is launched using the A70 SYLVER vertical launcher or torpedo tubes if the launch is from submarines.
Already last October, Sportime had mentioned the Turkish efforts to equip the six new German submarines that Turkey is receiving with cruise missiles.
Turkey is developing a new missile, which will have the characteristics of the American Tomahawk and the Russian Kalibr, which will be able to be launched from ships and submarines.
